A new name for an ever changing and dynamic department. As a department we have opted to rename ourselves the Religion, Philosophy and Ethics department (RPE) to better reflect the curriculum that is delivered to the girls from Year 7 to Year 13.
The Religion, Philosophy and Ethics Department aims to promote the study and enjoyment of religious issues through a varied and exciting curriculum. The Department promotes a course of study which enables all girls, irrespective of their religion, beliefs and academic ability to have equal access to RPE and to experience success and enjoyment in their work, and thus reach their full potential.
Religious issues are studied within an atmosphere of honesty, thus enabling girls to develop a range of personal qualities such as initiative, independence and an ability to listen to others' points of view, resulting in respect for their opinions. In RPE the Department promotes and encourages girls' moral and spiritual awareness.
